A quick fancy dress prop for my brother

This lightsaber was produced quickly as a prop for my younger brother, as he was attending a Star Wars themed fancy dress birthday party, but didn't have a lightsaber of his own.

The light tube was produced by frosting an acrylic tube by roughening the exterior using sandpaper, causing the light to diffuse along the tube. The hilt and tubing connector were 3D printed on the FORM 1 printer and attached using screws. The handle pattern is a series of vinyl strips which are wrapped around the tubing.
